About the Book
One of the major pitfalls of the past few decades is —either/or thinking—either attractional or missional; traditional or contemporary; old or new. In Deep Roots, Wild Branches, missiologist and church planter Dr. Michael Beck contends we must cultivate what he calls a —blended ecology of church that has both deep roots and wild branches. Drawing on biblical wisdom and emerging forms of church planting, Beck introduces us to present-day models and examples that don’t leave traditional forms behind, but harness the power of —both/and. It honors vintage models while blending fresh expressions of real evangelism. This book serves as an introduction; consider it a bite-sized appetizer to inspire local churches to cultivate a blended ecology of church in their communities.
